This is an impingement of the median nerve, usually due to overuse of the wrist which causes a narrowing of the carpal tunnel, creating an inflammation of nerves and tendons of the forearm and wrist.
The pain may be local to the wrist, but it can also be due to tightness of muscles and fascia in the neck and shoulders. Symptoms can vary from tenderness, to tingling and numbness in the hands and fingers.
Carpal tunnel can be caused by sports, activities where the wrist is used for support, or commonly office works such as continuous use of a computer keyboard.
